Recent guest reviews

Room helped our step count being up 'in the Gods'! Comfy beds. Helpful staff. Great location near the Botanic Gardens. Highly recommend The Orchard nearby for dinner. Had breakfast one day which had lots of options

The hotel was so nice. We received a free upgrade to the Holiday Apartment. It was wonderful to have a nice big space for our two week stay. Sheree the onsite manager was excellent. Full of local knowledge and advice about tours/trips to do.

The hotel management generously donated an over night stay in the four poster room as a raffle prize for a cancer charity. I won this prize and had a very welcome stay and fantastic experience here. We had bubbly waiting in our room when we arrived and breakfast included in the morning. The staff were very helpful and friendly, our room was spotless and comfortable. This hotel has kept the traditional features well and the hotel has a very homely ambiance. We will definitely be returning in the future and I would like to give a big thanks to the staff at the Inverleith hotel for making our stay so memorable.

Me & the boyfriend decided on an impromptu visit to Edinburgh. The hotel we booked was just lovely. The lady was fantastic, friendly and chatty just the way we like it! She made us feel so welcome and at home. The hotel is a 2 minute walk from a bus that can take you through Edinburgh up to the mount for £1.60 I took it before my SO arrived & it was quick! Mainly my boyfriend & I walked because we don't mind a 20 min walk to the city centre or a 25/30 min walk to the royal mile from the hotel. The hotel room was lovely, clean and warm. Breakfast was tasty. We would recommend it to any of you in a heart beat. When we visit Edinburgh again we will come back to the Inverleith hotel definitely. A****

Small but very clean and comfortable room. Excellent service from very helpful staff. Generous well cooked breakfast with plenty of choice. Has become our hotel of choice when we stay in Edinburgh. Very reasonable rates for a city hotel.

As ever lovely breakfast clean rooms lovely place to stay and would come again any day thanks so much Decent sized room pity some of tv channels not working but excellent food and beverages on offer and staff always willing to help

Friendly helpful family run hotel. Good food if you need anything you only had to ask. small single room but very comfortable. close to city centre by bus 10 minutes. Lots of brochures for the tourists.

We just needed a bed for the night in Edinburgh. Everything thing was good enough for what we needed. We stayed in one of the small double rooms. It was very compact but comfortable and quiet. Didn't try the breakfast so can't comment on that. Great location, North of the city centre - about 20 minute walk into the city centre, lots of good cafes, pubs and restaurants nearby and the beautiful Botanics.

This is a quirky little boutique hotel that, in my opinion, is not walking distance to the major tourist locations in Edinburgh, although it's close to a bus stop and right next door to the Botanical Center. If you're young and like to walk, then it's fine. We are mid-60s and prefer to do our walking at the historical sites. OK for short stays; it's actually more like a B&B than a true hotel. Might be good for business travelers. People with children might have problems. Staff is pleasant and helpful and the 100-year-old building has charm. Probably best for Europeans, since most Americans would likely complain that the rooms are too small, and they would be truly shocked that there is no elevator (lift, for you Brits). Hefting big suitcases up and down the spiral staircase to the lower level was challenging. Definitely not accessible to the disabled, in my opinion. Breakfast was well prepared, but the menu does not change from day to day. They have a small bar and offer afternoon tea, but we did not take advantage of that. Free wi-fi is good.

This is a small hotel just beyond the central city but an easy walk & right on three bus routes. It is across the street from the Botanical Garden, a must-see in this city. The rooms are well-appointed & beautifully decorated in an understated way. The public areas are graceful, befitting the vintage look of the place. Breakfasts have several nice choices & is served in a bight cheery room. There is a small bar for drinks in the evening before or after you go out. The proprietors could not be more accommodating.
